the that the evidence we brought out in the environment of public works committee was new and hadn't been adequately considered. that was dr. o'connor's work showing the downstream harm from those near the mining of the tar sands and the testimony from a community organizer in texas about those who have health damage because of the refining of tar sands-type crude oil. and then those who are near the pepco, the waste product of it in detroit and chicago with really telling stories about children literally having to flee the baseball field to get away from the cloud of choking dust that was blown off the dump. >> mm-hmm. dr. o'connor, i keep hearing this, that the tar sands oil is far more toxic than anything else that the being refined anywhere in the world. is that correct, sir? >> absolutely. >> it is correct that there's nothing worse coming out of the ground on the face of the earth than this oil that's going to come out of the tar sands. >> all the information we have supports that. >> dr. o'connor, how toxic is it when it comes to imposing possible health risks on society? >> i guess from the

, look, in a hyper partisan environment where he has to run for re-election, an issue like this can be polarized. any issue around race, as you know, wolf, sends people to their full rise corners. the last thing the president wants to do when he's running for re-election is to have a country more polarized. i think the beauty of this time now is you can have more risky conversations that are important for moving this country forward right now in his second term. so i'm thankful that he did. >> i want to play another excerpt from the president's powerful speech. cornell and don, both of you listen to this. >> no excuses. government and philanthropy, faith-based communities, we've got to help you knock down some of the barriers that you experience. that's what we're here for. but you've got responsibilities, too. and i know you can meet the challenge. many of you already are, if you make the effort. it may be hard, but you will have to reject the cynicism that the circumstances of your birth or societies injustices necessarily defines you and your future. it will take courage but you'

changing the entire arc of their day and creating healthy environments for kids from morning to night. and i think with those small changes we're starting to make some progress. >> reporter: and some of the changes that first lady brought up this week during one of her speeches was that now big chain restaurants are offering more healthy menu, separate menus of healthy option. organizations are planting gardens at schools. she also said that water has now surpassed soda as the most consumed beverage in america. you saw the vice president and the president taking a sip of water at the end of that work out. and so water she says is now surpassing soda. those are some of the changes that the first lady mentions coming out of this four year old campaign. one other bit of news is very young children, obesity rates among very young children 2 to 5 have dropped 43% in the past decade. they are not attributing it directly to the let's move campaign but this is the good news the first lady is hoping we'll see more of. >> i'm sure we'll see more of michele obama dancing with eggplants. athena j
is that i grew up in an environment that was a little more forgiving. >> that was the president today being quite frank and personal about his past. before nousing a new initiative that deems to help the would be barack obamas around the country. speaking to a pack room that included the parents of trayvon martin, al sharpton to bill o'reilly, he described his my brother's keeper initiative. he will be pushing associations to help young help of color overcome the profound effects of racism to meet their potential. he made his case in terms of how it would benefit not just the boys in question but the nation as a whole. >> the fact too many of them are falling by the wayside. dropping out. unemployed. involved in negative behavior, going to jail. cycles of homelessness breeds violence and mistrust. and our country is a little less than what we know it can be. so we need to change the statistics. not just for the sake -- and boys but for the sake of america's future. >> for most of his five plus years in office the president has strenuously and stood justly avoided framing any of his policies
to keep it that way. driven to preserve the environment, csx moves a ton of freight nearly 450 miles on one gallon of fuel. what a day. can't wait til tomorrow. >>> america's longest war may be coming to an end sooner than expected. the president ord ed the pentagon to draw up plans for a complete withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of the year. joining me now, jack jacobs. can i ask you this. is this posturing or does the u.s. really want to do this? >> i think we really want to do it but we shouldn't discount the fact that our politicians have a policy to think before they think, drawing lines in the sand we never tend to reinforce. so some of this is posturing but by the end of the day if we can't reach an arrangement with karzai, we're leaving. we are going to do that. we have areas surrounding afghanistan we can do some operations but i think the intention is to get out. >> a reporter wrote yesterday that u.s. officials told her that al qaeda is planning a comeback in afghanistan. some of that is politically motivated. how concerned are you that that is a reality. >> i think
was saying, i want to be fair to the russian people consuming this in that controlled news environment, we're not saying that if you're buying the putin view of this, you know, that that's just -- you're just being dumb. i mean, there's a lot of ways in which he presents this that can sound reasonable if you hear nothing else. >> absolutely. and this has been one of the most amazing things of the putin project since he's come to power. he's created this kind of alternate reality. at first he did it domestically. when you're in russia, it's incredibly. the talk of democracy, the posters on the streets, the people out at also ryes, the lines at election booths. these are things that the kremlin orchestrates very, very carefully. this is the first time he's moved beyond his borders to do it there. so this is a very controlled campaign. it's a theatre. >> james welcome back to the show. thanks for joining us again. >>> coming up, vladimir putin's political machine. and later, breaking news from texas. wendy davis has become the first woman since anne richards to win a primary for governor of t
was i could see myself in these young men. and the only difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. so when i made a mistake, the consequences were not as severe. i had people who encourage me, not just my mom and grandparents, but wonderful teachers and community leaders. and they would push me to work hard and study hard and make the most of myself. and if i didn't listen, they said it again. and if i didn't listen, they said it a third time, and they would give me second chances and third chances. they never gave up on me. and so i didn't give up on myself. i told these young men my story then, and i repeat it now because i firmly believe that every child deserves the same chances that i have. this is an issue of national importance. it's as important as any issue that i work on. it's an issue that goes to the very heart of why i ran for president. because if america stands for anything, it stands for the idea of opportunity for everybody. the notion that no matter who you are or where you came from or the circumstances in which you are born,
environment. the only thing that's protecting him right now is this giant board of other -- with other names on the scandal sheet. so it's hard to spend enough time just on what a scandal samson is. >> and this is a question that's been raised in this whole process. when david wildstein's lawyer trying to get his bills paid. he also alluded to conflicts of interest between port authority commissioners. it's very unclear what he's saying but it seems he might be hinting at more about david samson. we've seen several conflicts come about david samson. a paz station in harrison. we' seen multiple examples. >> every breath samson takes at the port authority takes is a conflict of interest and christie knew that would be the case. he knew what his real job was. "up with steve kernacki." coming up, the republicans and ted cruz and the battle that never ends between them. and joy reid joins me to talk about the president's new initiative, my brother's keeper and the extraordinary comments the president made at the white house made today. and bill o'reilly will tell us why he doesn't want to be pres
with a bully in russia that more than willing to bully its way to decree alt the kind of government environment andal lie it wants in the ukraine, no matter what the ukrainian people want. we do need to be strong. i also think we need to make sure the ukrainians don't take any unnecessary pro tvocative acts. i would fully expect lavrov to be saying what he is, whether in fact they do that or whether they have a very different understanding of what their rights are in crimea where they have the large base, may be a very different story. >> congressman, do you anticipate that congress will approve more aid for ukraine? >> i think there would be strong bipartisan support for that. there are a lot of members on both sides of the aisle that realize, this is a critical battleground in the war of ideas and not only going to help determine what kind of future ukraine has, whether they can like their neighbor in poland, have a prosperous economy and open society or recede back to what russia is looking look, awe thor tear yan and we should do all we have but it will determine for those who live in russi
in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. i firmly believe that he have child deserves the same chances that i had. because if america stands for anything, it stands for the idea of opportunity for everybody. the notion that no matter who you you are or where you came from or the circumstances into which you are born, if you work hard, if you take responsibility, then you can make it in this country. >> the approach to expand opportunity for all, not a right for a few. and as one white aide said, democrats have a different approach. we leave the economy grows best when it grows from the middle out. that's how the president wants his party to frame the midterm debate. we'll hear more on that when he addresses the dnc winter meeting. let's start the show with brian boiler. i want to go back to my brother's keeper, this interesting initiative the president is pushing. and i think back to 2008 when the president was introducing himself to the nation. for the most part, part of the bargain he was making with the nation was i'm not going to talk about race unless i have to and i'm cer
had this sort of disembodied environment where there was no real connection and people anecdotally were telling people, yeah, i was sitting on the brim for four hours, whatever. now you are hearing emergency phone calls that are directly related to the tie-up on the bridge and then you layer over top of that the political shenanigans of some really stupid people who decided to have fun and games at the expense of all those commuters and this thing takes on a whole different feel for people on the ground, which is why i think the poll numbers may shift a little bit more as these tapes get more airing and people hear that anguish and that anger on the bridge. that's gonna translate in poll numbers and that's something i know the christie people are going to be concerned about. >> you know, steve, the governor finally got a question or a couple of questions at the -- at his ask the governor forum earlier this week. and i want to play a little bit of sound from that because christie's tenacity has not abated at all. let's take a listen. >> i'm not gonna give into the hysteria of questi

"fox news" was hammering the united nations and france and remember the whole freedom fries thing quick they were hammering al-jazeera the airbase television network's hostile anti-american. michael moore was a "fox news" enemy. they develop these characters on the opposing side and then they would build up their characters on the pro-side. george w. bush as the hero. they develop these story lines and repeat them through the day. they would start on fox and friends and go to the news hour and continued to prime-time. you see that going back to tbn with the repetition of stower
that someone sees a gun on to how can we do this being least disruptive in a learning environment. and there's a lot of work to be done that lies ahead of us. >> there's one estimate that that work's going to cost over $2 million including retraining of police officers involved but now they're going to have to distinguish between good guns and bad guns on campus. where before all guns were bad on campus. greg, it seems to me that you might have some better educational purposes for that $2 million. >> well, yeah. and i think as a lot of letter writers have pointed out, i don't know nothing about guns, and i shouldn't have one. but with nine hours' training i too can become a hobbyist police officer and be authorized to bring a gun on campus and to use it according to my nine hours of training. i don't want vigilantes protecting me in my classroom. i think vigilante justice is best practiced at home. and i have nothing against it. just no, thanks, i don't need them to have guns if they're not trained officers of the law or have extensive experience. and people around them, professionals who wi
. are you arguing at this point when you look at the environment, technology, what we're up against, there isn't really a logical place for federalism here because of what you just mentioned? >> no, there's certainly a logical place and the states can easily go beyond what the federal government is requiring, and they are. you've had the northeastern states that entered into a compact on greenhouse gases and do some carbon trading, so there's a lot the states can and will do, but bottom line, these are issues that affect all americans, actually, they affect the world, and we need to be taking action on them. the world's not going to end tomorrow. nobody says that, but i think anyone who has been outside in the last year understands that things are changing. i mean, the world has changed since it was formed, but what we're putting into the atmosphere and the way we're changing land use is having an impact, making these things happen faster and be more severe, and we've got to slow them down to start to anticipate what we're going to have to deal with. >> and what do you say to republ

difference is that i grew up in an environment that was a little bit more forgiving. when i was their age, i was a lot like them. i didn't have ad in the house. and i was angry about it even though i didn't necessarily realize it at the time. i made bad choices. i got high without always thinking about the harm that it could do. groups that have had the odds stacked against them in unique ways that require unique solutions. groups who've seen fewer opportunities that have spanned generations. the worst part is that we become numb to these statistics. we're not surprised by them. we take them as the norm. we just assume this is an inevitable part of american life instead of the outrage that it is. [ applause ] >> and i -- and i believe the continuing struggles of so many boys and young men, the fact that too many of them are falling by the way side, dropping out, unemployed, involved in negative behavior, being pro filed. so we need to change the statistics. not just for the sake of the young men and boys, but for the sake of america's future. and that's -- that's why in the aftermath of the
and world bank call enabling environment. that is essentially the trust of businesses in the rule of law. it is not a shortage of money. there are enormously wealthy afghans and regional investors would like to put money but the question is can they trust in the rules of the game and world of law to do that. what would be the rules that governor enthe sector in particular. minerals will not be the magic bullet but oil and gas resources discovered recently have been quite immense. it is not inconceivable in 10 to 15 years this can more than underwrite the cost of the sustaining services within the country. so in conclusion i think let's move from looking for the quick fixes and magic bullets understanding that peace and stability, governance will be at the heart of peace and is it stability and small wins will win for the after bans and the question, can the politics deliver something that the 90% of afghans who believe in more than 90% believe in law and order and want that future can realize it. >> thank you. david. >> thank you very much andrew. it is a quite a pleasure to be here. i w
